Quimby's is located in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago, on North Ave. at Wolcott St. (three blocks East of Damen Ave.) and 1 block west of Honore.
CTA - The North Avenue bus #72 stops at Wolcott and we are right there at 1854 W. North Ave. There are also plenty of buses that run on both North Ave., Damen, and Milwaukee Ave (we are 3 easily walkable blocks from that intersection). For CTA trains: take the El (O'Hare-Forest Park) Blue Line, exit at the Damen stop. When you get out of the station, turn left (north) on Damen. Then make a right (east) on North Ave, and walk three blocks. We are at Wolcott. For more info about the CTA, visit transitchicago.com.
